Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet burgers and drinks at Monsoon Burgers in Fairfield.
Monsoon Burgers' convex rotating grill flame-broils its menu of burgers to customers' desired temperatures, and then, it clothes them in California flavors. The signature Monsoon burger hosts a cultural soiree of mushrooms, bacon, and homemade guacamole atop a 100% ground beef patty ($9.79), and the chicken avocado burger sizzles its chicken breast beneath a cool avocado umbrella, topping it in jack cheese or any of five other dairy hats ($8.25). Monsoon Burgers also adds variety to vegetarian diets with three different kinds of garden burger ($6.39–$7.75), best devoured with a side of garlic fries ($1.35+ with burger, $3.59 side) or fried zucchini ($3.99). A condiment bar lets proprietary lunchers put their personal stamp on a burger, minus the hassle of finding a notary public, with two types of lettuce, three types of onions, tomatoes, pickles, jalapeños, and olives.
Monsoon Burgers also taps a wellspring of fountain drinks ($2.29) to replenish dry, ice-laden cups with unlimited refills. For a more nostalgic cool-down, stick two straws in a root-beer float ($3.49) or in an espresso-chip Dreyer's ice-cream milkshake ($4.29) and share it while staring into the eyes of a high school steady or confused UPS deliveryman. The burger shop also outfits adults with a variety of beer pitchers.
